AB6IX‘s Daehwi and Han Hyun Min are leaving their MC position on M! Countdown following today’s episode, and will be replaced by (G)I-DLE‘s Miyeon and Actor Nam Yoon Soo.

According to an exclusive report from Hankyung, both Daehwi and Han Hyun Min will be leaving their MC position on M! Countdown following their last episode today,. The two have been working together as the MC’s for M! Countdown since joining on April 10, 2019, over a year and ten months. They both decided to step down from the MC position to focus more on their personal activities.


Later, another exclusive report from SPOTV stated that (G)I-DLE’s Miyeon and actor Nam Yoon Soo would be the new MC’s for M! Countdown, and will begin their MC duties on the next broadcast episode.
